Star Wars (The Originals)

I dare anyone to watch this classic film and hate it. It’s pretty much impossible. This film has everything: humor, action, adventure, suspense, and a touch of romance. This is just about as close as you can get to a perfect film. All the characters are fantastic. Who didn’t want to be Han Solo or Princess Leia when they were little kids? Who didn’t want their own R2-D2 to trail along behind them? And who didn’t want to cruise in the Millenium Falcon, the fastest ship in the galaxy? This film gave us one of the most memorable villains in history: Darth Vader. It’s sequel, The Empire Strikes Back, gave us one of the biggest plot twists and biggest spoiler in movie history: ‘Luke, I am your father!’ But let’s talk about the themes of the movie. What is the story of Star Wars trying to tell us? To look at the themes in Star Wars one would definitely have to look at the idea of the Force. One powerful force that holds all life together. All life is born into, lives in, and dies and becomes part of the Force. This is actually a lifestyle that many people choose to live. I’ve talked with people on discussion sites that believe that everyone lives in a field of sorts, and by manipulating the energies of that field we can manipulate things that happen to us. This is pretty much the message of Star Wars. So, although Star wars is a must-watch for everyone, it doesn;t give the best of messages.

Small children may be intimated by the darkness of Darth Vader or the simple evil of Emperor Palpatine. Some may be disturbed by the image of severed arms or countless aliens. I’d recommed this film for anyone above 6 or so, although I know 2 year olds who love the Star wars films. Definitely 9 out of 10 stars.

Next review: The Matrix.

    Great review! Although I would love to hear one for the prequels.
    By the way, did you mean to put “I recommend these films for anyone 6 and under” or did you mean 6 and up?

    haha, sorry. i guess it’s a matter of opinion. the CGi was excellent, but most of the acting was pretty bad. although yoda was awesome.

    yeah, I don’t know. It was just one of the first “cool action” movies I saw in theaters with my dad. One of the landmark moments of my childhood. haha

    i think that the second one was alright. NOT as good as the 4-6th ones…but ok. yeah, the acting was awful but…it fills in some of the blanks.

Quote of the Amount of Time I Want to Leave it Up Here

"I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-Beams... glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost... like tears... in rain. Time... to die." ~Roy Batty (Blade Runner)
